Man sentenced in crystal meth lab case

STEUBENVILLE -Roger A. Dagan, 29, of 1365 county Road 1, Rayland, was sentenced to six months in the Eastern Ohio Correction Center on Wednesday by Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge David Henderson after Dagan pleaded guilty to a charge in connection with a crystal methamphetamine lab bust in November.

The Jefferson County Drug Task Force and the county sheriff’s department found the lab during a raid at the Dagan’s house.

Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla said the drug task force was given permission to enter the home and found men who were trying to destroy the lab in the basement.

Two other men besides Dagan were arrested.

Dagan pleaded guilty to illegal assembly of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs.

He will be on probation for one year after his release from the Eastern Ohio Correction Center.
